My Desk

Saturday, January 26, 2013

I have to admit - we moved into this house months ago and I still have yet to unpack the majority of my things! Having moved so many times, it's so hard to get motivated enough to unpack and assemble everything - however, having gotten sick of having papers and books cluttered everywhere, I finally organized my desk and LOVE the result so much I just had to share a closer look with you all! ♡

My actual desk is somewhat short, so I elongated it by stacking two boxes and covering the ugly cardboard with cute bedding and old selves! I placed two of my favorite vinyl records (Prince's Purple Rain and the soundtrack to Disney's Cinderella) on top and arranged my lipstick collection and resourceful/inspirational books (including thrifted Disney golden books, Creative Inc., Pretty: The NYLON Book of Beauty, & The Teen Vogue Handbook)!

Also pictured: the ADORABLE sweater clips Miss Annika made specially for me of Finn and Jake from Adventure Time (to be worn in an outfit post soon)!

Closer to my actual computer you can find even more books (two Style Me Vintage books & 50 Fashion Designers You Should Know), my planner, vintage Alice in Wonderland Paperdolls, pins I made (one of which made out of a sticker illustrated by Wishcandy), my Fred Flare ice cream lamp, the gorgeous mermaid fabric gifted to me by Christine, my Judy Jetson watch, and my Locketship cat/ice cream bow (still one of my favorite things EVER *__*).

And decorating the walls is my flapper tie, pink measuring tape, new dress from Mod Dolly (another sneak peek to a future outfit post!), and my gorgeous I Love Crafty necklace ♡

Phew - sorry for the long post! So, what do you think? And what's decorating your desk?

  11. Ice cream cone! A lovely workspace, very colourful and cute. I'm envious of your drawing tablet thingy with the pen. Thingy is not the right word but I don't know what it's mean to be called!

  52. Your desk is so cute! I've seen that seashell necklace too, I want one sooooo bad.

    Have you designed anything yourself yet? Jewelry or dresses? I just joined this blog about a month ago so apologies if I'm out of the loop, but you seem like you'd make some amazing things of your own!

  54. i love this, you have so many cute things! especially that incredible ice cream lamp!! and i love that you display some of your records like that, sometimes i buy secondhand records just for the pretty covers, especially old disney or children's records so it makes sense to display them like that. :)
